This week the thing that I learned about that stood out the most to me was the steps of solving a word problem.
first you read and read again but the second time underline the words or numbers that indicate values that would next go into your equation(these values could be anything eg. 12 milk cartons). Then create your equation and solve, once you have your numerical answer put that into an sentence for your final answer.
when creating your equation look for more than and less than because those mean add or subtract. Also take a close look at the final sentence because that usually describes your variable.
